Dean Z – The Ultimate Elvis
From his early days growing up in the high desert of Lancaster, California, to stages across the globe, Dean Z has shown time and again that he is one of the very best entertainers in the music business today. When Dean was a toddler he saw the documentary "This Is Elvis" on TV. He immediately jumped up on the coffee table and started to imitate Presley’s every move. Not long after, Dean's mother made his first Elvis jump suit and he was on his way. At the age of 17, after performing in several shows of his own, Dean took off for the bright light city of Las Vegas. He soon earned a spot with the World's Greatest Live Tribute Show, Legends in Concert. In 2007 he moved to headlining the show in Branson, Missouri.

He also fulfilled a childhood dream of performing a Las Vegas residency for Legends In Concert at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino. Dean also had the pleasure of joining the national touring production of “Elvis Lives,” a live musical highlighting Elvis’ career that features world champions from the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest.
